ABSTRACT

In wood furniture production, utilizing hardware plays a significant role in enhancing quality of design, and have a direct effect on productivity and convenience as well. Up to the present, although there are diverse hardware in furniture making, it is hard to find cases inside and outside of Korea using embedded square lumber hardware that fixes square lumbers from three ways by meeting them on one point at the corner with 45 degrees. Even though three-way miter joint technique has been continued as one of traditional furniture making method, this is hard to be generalized because this demands high level of skill as well as has limit in production. For these reasons, the researcher proposes corner joint hardware for wood furniture using 3d printing. For developing three way miter joint hardware, this study starts with researching a term of three-way miter that is generally mixed with several ways of meanings. Secondly, the author researches structure of three-way miter and case study of its application example between traditional and modern wood furniture. In detail, researcher analyze structural character in furniture connector focused on fixing example between square lumbers for utilizing 3d printing. As for prototyping, 3D printed fixing connector is combined with existing square lumber joint system to strengthen and make up pros and cons of each part has. In this phase, 3D modeling and 3D printing is used for mock-up, and before and after image of combining 3d printed hardware is suggested. In this study, three way miter joint hardware has embedded structure, which is invisible outside. This can expect ornamental effect caused by molding and groove process on wood furniture that may looks simple. More simplified production process than traditional one would elevate productivity and access to wood furniture design with natural grain, and also be useful for corner joint that consist of square lumber including shelves, storage cabinets and table as well.
